Potato Frittata

Frittatas are a wonderful creation, aren’t they? Versatile, filling, and bursting with flavor, they’re a go-to dish for many home cooks.

Today, I’m excited to share with you my take on the classic frittata – the Potato Frittata. This recipe combines the humble potato with eggs, cheese, and a sprinkle of parsley to create a dish that’s both hearty and satisfying.

Originating from Italian cuisine, frittatas have become a staple in kitchens around the world, loved for their simplicity and adaptability. Don’t be intimidated by its fancy name; this Potato Frittata recipe is perfect for beginners and experienced cooks alike. So, let’s dive in and whip up this delightful dish together!

Expert Tip: For extra flavor, sauté the potatoes with diced onions or garlic before adding the egg mixture.


Potatoes: Potatoes form the hearty base of this frittata, adding a comforting texture and subtle sweetness to each bite. They provide a satisfying bite and pair perfectly with the other ingredients.

Eggs: Eggs serve as the binding agent in this recipe, holding everything together while adding richness and protein. They create a fluffy, creamy texture that’s essential to a delicious frittata.

Cheddar Cheese: The sharpness of cheddar cheese adds a burst of flavor and gooey goodness to the frittata. When melted, it creates delightful pockets of cheesy goodness throughout the dish.

Oil: Oil is used for frying the potatoes, ensuring they become crispy and golden brown. It also prevents sticking and adds a hint of richness to the overall flavor.

Parsley: Finely chopped parsley adds freshness and a pop of color to the frittata. Its bright, herbaceous flavor balances the richness of the eggs and cheese.

Salt and Black Pepper: These simple seasonings enhance the flavors of the dish, bringing everything together harmoniously.

Expert Tip: Experiment with different herbs and spices, such as thyme, rosemary, or paprika, to customize the flavor of your frittata.

Serving Suggestions

  • Serve the Potato Frittata warm, either as a hearty breakfast or a satisfying brunch option.
  • Pair it with a simple side salad dressed with vinaigrette for a complete meal.
  • Garnish with additional chopped parsley or a sprinkle of grated cheese for an extra burst of flavor.
  • Enjoy leftovers cold or reheated for a quick and tasty meal on the go.

Expert Tip: Use a well-seasoned cast-iron skillet for a crispy golden crust on the bottom of the frittata.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use other types of cheese?

Absolutely! Feel free to experiment with different types of cheese, such as mozzarella, feta, or goat cheese, to customize the flavor of your frittata.

Can I add other vegetables to the frittata?

Yes, you can! Bell peppers, onions, spinach, mushrooms, or tomatoes are all great additions to enhance the flavor and nutritional value of your frittata. Just make sure to cook them before adding the egg mixture.

How do I know when the frittata is fully cooked?

The frittata is ready when the eggs are fully set and no longer runny. You can test this by gently shaking the pan – if the frittata jiggles slightly in the center but holds its shape, it’s done.

Can I make this recipe ahead of time?

Yes, you can! Prepare the frittata ahead of time and refrigerate it. When ready to serve, simply reheat slices in the microwave or oven until warmed through.

Can I freeze leftover frittata?

Yes, you can! Wrap leftover frittata slices tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil and store them in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 1 month. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator before reheating.

  • 5 Potatoes
  • 4 large Eggs
  • 150 g Cheddar Cheese
  • 2 tbsp Oil
  • 2 tbsp Parsley Finely chopped
  • Salt To taste
  • Black Pepper To taste


  • Start by washing and peeling the potatoes. Cut them into small, even-sized chunks.
  • In a non-stick frying pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the potato chunks and cook them until they are golden brown and crispy on the outside, stirring occasionally.
  • While the potatoes are cooking, whisk the eggs in a bowl. Add the shredded cheddar cheese and finely chopped parsley. Season with salt and pepper to taste and mix everything together.
  • Once the potatoes are cooked, reduce the heat to low and pour the egg mixture over them. Stir gently to ensure that the egg mixture is evenly distributed.
  • Cover the pan and let the frittata cook for about 15-20 minutes, or until the eggs are fully set.
  • Use a spatula to carefully slide the frittata onto a serving plate. Cut it into wedges and serve warm.


Ensure that the potatoes are cut into even-sized chunks to guarantee that they all cook evenly.
You can substitute cheddar cheese with other types of cheese like mozzarella or gouda, according to your preference.
Remember not to overcook the eggs. The frittata is done when the eggs are just set and the frittata is golden brown on the bottom.
Fresh herbs like parsley not only add colour but also lend a vibrant flavour to the frittata
Seasoning is key in this dish. Feel free to adjust the salt and pepper according to your taste.
